sony ericsson open is here. lets fire up some discussions about this masters series event coming right up in hot, steamy miami. who is looking like the favorite for the title there from your own vantage point and why?

who is going there to win and who is going there to party? the surface plays a little faster than the one in indian wells. can roddick make a deep run here?

and what about fed, clay warrior, djokovic, and murray? this surface may suit murray`s game better.

the surface is just right for Fed. he may go for it. he is certainly well rested.

Murray is the defending champion and this surface suits him well enough (not as much as DecoTurf though) so if he's in a good mindset he has a good shot, his body language in IW was very negative and he looked out of sorts

Roger is a big question mark, will he give his best or not? I wouldn't count him for the title but wouldn't be surprised if he wins either, I just wouldn't bet on either thing happening, he's too unpredictable in MS events nowadays

For Rafa, Miami has been a bit of a curse, he has come very very close to win but couldn't get it, he's planning to play singles and doubles again, so I wouldn't really count him in a surface that doesn't suit him as much as the IW one does, but again, this IS Rafa, so I might be wrong

Will Cilic, Soderling, Djokovic step up to the plate? everyone seems to be so inconsistent these days :o

just hope cilic actually decides to show up this time :mad: don't want him to go through a slump at this point like last year
